    Re: bite down yawns

    I think you're right, but it doesn't seem to be popular:
    "bite down yawns" - Google Search
    "bite down a yawn" - Google Search
    "bite a yawn down" - Google Search
    "bite yawns down" - Google Search

    Maybe my searches are incomplete for some reason though?
